The purposes of the Elementary School Packages are to encourage students to use kind words and to do simple acts of kindness through the example of Rachel Scott. 40-minute presentations and follow-up materials will address root problems like isolation, prejudice and bulling in an age-appropriate manner. Rachel Scott is an example of how one person can make a difference to make her school a better place. All topics are presented in an age appropriate, positive language for the elementary-age audience. The Columbine tragedy is NOT mentioned.

The Packages are separated into Awaken, Sustain and Immerse to allow programming customization and flexibility for your school. All three packages contain elements from the Awaken the Learner framework, with the Immerse package containing ALL elements of the ATL program and process. Awaken the Learner gives you the tools, resources, and the process road map to fully implement the Rachel's Challenge vision and system with high fidelity.
